Big-shot executive Robert Stiles' car is damaged when parked at the lodge. Stiles takes Red Green and the other lodge members to court, forcing them to come up with $10,000 in damages in ten days - or else lose their beloved Possum Lodge. Red and the boys embark on a road trip across the country, en route to a Duct Tape Festival in the USA, where they intend to win first prize by creating a sculpture made of at least 50% duct tape. Unfortunately, Stiles has bought off a crooked sheriff who intends to make the trip very difficult for Red... Written by
In the establishing shot of the duct tape contest, John Phillip Sousa's "Liberty Bell" march can be heard playing in the background. The march is best known as the theme song to the British sketch comedy Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969). See more »

After the credits finish, there's a scene with Red and Harold in the van. Red says that saving the lodge will make the world a better place and Harold asks if he really believes that. Then the director yells cut. See more »
Red Green is a genius, up there with Einstein and Newton
I should admit that I wasn't that much of a fan of the Red Green Show before I saw the movie, but now I watch the show a lot. Steve Smith is one of Canada's classics, along with pretty much all the actors which were ever on the show or movie. I was a bit disappointed that Rick Green wasn't in it as Bill, but that didn't keep me from enjoying the movie. There was not anything that I remember feeling disappointed or unsatisfied about, and I agree that it is a must for fans of Red Green, but those who don't 'get' the humour of the Red Green Show probably won't enjoy it- in which case I should give some healthy advice: Lighten Up! And one last thing I learned from this film: never leave your keys in the ignition when you step outside of your car.
